Riding on Kodachadri Trail was one heck of craziest ride I have ever done.

Kodachadri (Kudajadri) is a mountain peak with dense forests (elevation - 1,343 metres above sea level) in the Western Ghats of Shivamogga Dist., Karnataka. It is declared as natural heritage site by Government of Karnataka and is the 10th highest peak of Karnataka.

For tourists this destination is popular for trekking and 4X4 jeep ride however if one have itch for off-road bike ride then its a paradise for them to satisfy the desire. After a 7 kms of mind blowing off-road trail the hill top gives a mesmerizing view as if Mother nature has spread a big green colored carpet over the hills.

I will suggest to hire a guide for trekking and Jeep can be negotiated for INR 1200-1500 or 300/pax approximately but night camping at hill top is strictly prohibited. There is a small temple like structure near the peak where Adi Shankara meditated known as Sarvajna Peeth. Arabian sea and Mookambika temple of Kollur will be visible from the peak if climate is clear.
